How To Submit Blogger Sitemap To Yandex

How to submit blogger sitemap to Yandex | 101helper

Before I start let me tell you something about Yandex. Yandex is a Russian company that operates the largest search engine of Russia. It is one of the most popular search engine and after Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex is most popular. In the beginning this search engine was available in Russian language only but now it is available in English also. As a search engine it also has features like other search engines such as webmaster tools for webmasters and bloggers. You can read more about Yandex here. Yandex is not so popular but it is one of the best way to get more traffic and a successful blogger is that who takes advantage of every means no matter its more popular or less popular. So if you are interested in getting more traffic and want to improve your seo, I recommend you to submit your sitemap to Yandex. 

Like Google and Bing, sitemap can be submitted to Yandex also but its too different from submitting sitemap to Google or Bing. Google and bing accept the normal sitemap i.e: but incase of Yandex this sitemap can not be used. Yandex will show you an error, shown in below image. So to gain visitors from Yandex you have to do something different and for the same reason I am creating this post. So follow below mentioned steps to submit your blog's sitemap to Yandex.

You can check your sitemap status by click on check.
